I would have loved to have given a maximum rating but it doesn't quite make it. First, the good. The location is magic. Quiet, scenic, lovely buildings. The rooms are stylish and well furnished. Both we and our friends had French doors that led on to a large private patio shared by only 3 or 4 rooms. A bottle of sparkling water and one of still water each day is a lovely touch. The restaurant is extremely good, if a little pricey at GBP24 for two courses and GBP30 for three. The hotel clearly has an excellent chef. Some of the best mains our party of four had eaten for a while. The staff were very helpful and very friendly. The breakfast manager was particularly helpful and efficient, to the extent of reserving a more easily accessed table for us due to our friend being disabled. The breakfasts themselves were first rate, very good quality continental options and a wide range of cooked offerings like gorgeous warm smoked salmon and eggs. Also haddock etc as well as a traditional plate and a Welsh option (including cockles and lava bread). Room plus breakfast cost GBP140 per night. Upper range but ok for the UK. So, why not a maximum score? Finding women's underwear, clearly in need of laundering, in the wardrobe was not a good start. I would expect cleaning staff to have a check list that includes checking drawers and wardrobes. No towels when we returned one evening. Phoned and was told they would be there immediately, but 30 mins later went and got them ourselves. The bathroom light is movement activated. If you are in the shower or on the loo for more than a minute, hand waving is needed to turn the light back on. The monsoon walk-in shower is great, except you get a cold or hot drenching because the controls are the other side of the head and take some time to work out. There is no alternative location to reach the controls except to stand in the bath. Our friend's disabled room was good, except the flush is a button which he did not have the strength to push - think lever not button when it comes to disabled facilities. He was able to get into the restaurant through French doors but a wheelchair would have made this difficult and, often, required seated guests to clear a way. Would we stay at Slebech Park again? Yes, we would. However, as time passes the wrinkles noted above should be ironed out given the rates charged. A final plea, which I see is noted in other posts. Please locate a Slebech Park direction sign on the main road and warn visitors of the distance from there to the hotel. The transport authority standard sign left us and our friends wondering whether we had the right hotel.
